Truth or Fake

Truth is stranger than fiction

Especially in this day

What is seen and heard might just be

Just an elaborate play

 

Sensation gets attention

Excitement, blood, chaos

The mundane—the plain old truth, though

Barely gets a reaction

 

The nicest people might be nice

The most charming you could meet

Or that could be a distraction

To sweep you off your feet

This image may be subject to copyright

A free gift here and there

Most understanding and considerate

Or perhaps more con than kindness

Once realised, it could be late

 

Seeing is believing, they say

But how do you trust your sight?

When rehearsed performances abound

What’s wrong can seem so right

 

Test and prove everything

Make no assumptions

And even after removing all doubt

Check again, you could be wrong
